Homemade Valentine’s Greetings

These cute little Valentines are much easier than they look! Whether you use construction paper or card stock, the results will be charming and your child will be very proud. A perfect gift for teachers, the babysitter, or even a best friend.

Material Required:

1. 8.5 x 11 construction paper or card stock in various colors and/or patterns
2. Valentine and/or heart stickers
3. Scissors
4. Pinking shears (optional)
5. Glue stick or white craft or school glue
6. Glitter (pink, red, white)

Method:

Begin by cutting a piece of construction paper or card stock into four equal pieces.

Fold quartered paper in half to make a card.

For the easiest version, appropriate for preschoolers, use stickers to decorate or cut out hearts from a different color of construction paper or card stock to glue onto your cards. Experiment with different patterns, florals look great contrasted with stripes on a solid background.

Tap off excess glitter when completely dry. For the older set, let them use pinking sheers to cut out heart shapes and glue onto cards. Again, use contrasting patterns and colors to create a charming design. Once glue is dry, cards may curl up a little. Place cards between the pages of a heavy cookbook or phone book and leave for sometime.
